Ok, I can admit when I’m wrong. I originally scoffed and slightly rolled my eyes when I first saw the trailer for the new movie Upgrade. At the time, I may have been under the influence of something – and also, it hadn’t been confirmed that the movie would indeed be Rated R (which, for a revenge premise is a must in my book). And yes, that revenge premise has been done to death (no puns needed) – so I was aggressively skeptical. But……then this Red Band Teaser was released the other week:
Wowsers – that head shot! BTW – the lead actor in Upgrade, Logan Marshall Green, is in one of my favorite movies in recent years called The Invitation. Just wanted to add that bit of info. Upgrade was also written and directed by Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) and is produced by Blumhouse Productions (of course it is….cha-ching!) But anyway, I am fully onboard now with this one and will most likely do a double-feature with another movie I have been waiting on this weekend called Hereditary. Cheers to both! And cheers to gratuitous head shots!
